Craig Robinson is Everywhere, and Damn Funny

While in New Jersey last week I saw the movie Fanboys, which featured a cameo by Craig Robinson. The actor, not the President's brother in law. Then on Thursday I watched the Office, which has an ensemble cast that includes Craig Robinson. Monday I watched the new HBO show East Bound and Down, which... you guessed it: features another cameo by Robinson. Then I realized that not only does Craig Robinson keep popping up all over the place, but that he offen steals the show.

His part in Pineapple Express was by far my favorite part of the movie. His role in Zach and Miri Make a Porno was second only to Justin Long's portrayal of Brandon St. Randy. And that's saying something because I love that movie, and I think everyone in it was gold. Add to all of these turns in Walk Hard, Prop 8 the musical, The new Night at the Museam Movie and Knocked Up and you have a pretty amazing resume.

Plus, the hits just keep coming. Just today, I saw this trailer for the new movie from the guys behind the show The Whitest Kids You Know, which is a laugh riot. In Miss March Craig plays a famous rapper and his considerable skills appear to be well utilized once again. It's only a matter of time before he gets to star in his own show or movie.
